260Z Alloy Wheel (40300-N3200) Caps

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,
I'm chasing wheel caps to suit the Nissan OEM Alloy Wheels (40300-N3200). The part no. for the actual caps is: 40343-N3200.

Condition doesn't matter... Any shape will be considered.

 

*Edit these are not specifically for me, but trying to help a couple of people who are chasing these find some.

Yeah I saw the complete sets, I was hoping someone may have caps laying around and no wheels. Shipping the full set of wheels to North American will be expensive.

These are getting hard to find in good condition. They are a push-on, but the plastic 'fingers' on the inside often eventually break rendering the cap useless as they just fall off.

The later style ones from the 280ZX which have metal fingers & clip into the open end of the wheel's centre are a far better design.

 

The 2nd pic you have there shows how most of these caps appear today - bare chrome plastic with white 'Z', whereas there is supposed to be an iridescent blue paint insert surrounding the embossed 'Z'; however, the blue seems to deteriorate & fall away over time.

Yes I know I had a pair of these on my 240z back in the day.

 

I think a couple were missing the wheel caps and I recall those plastic finders breaking off...

 

As you say getting harder to find now and that little blue piece in the middle chips off.

I'm looking for a replacement a similar wheel cap (40343-N3200), one of which went AWOL from my Z a while back.

 

Alternatively, if anyone has a full set of the 280ZX caps with metal fixings, I'd be happy to buy those and fit them. That would make my 3 existing caps surplus to requirements. In that case I'd be happy to offer them for sale to folks who (like me) are missing one.

 

Can someone post the part number of the 280ZX caps?

 

Cheers,

Cam
